Feature request: Add the album feature in Windows Live Photo Gallery RRS feed

  • Question

  • When you install Picasa, it scans your hard drive for folders containing image files and displays your photos from these folders. These folders, along with the albums you create, make up the organization of your photos.

    Folders in Picasa represent actual folders on your computer's hard drive that contain photos. Changes you make to folders in Picasa affect the corresponding folders on your computer's hard drive. For example, deleting a photo from a folder also deletes the photo from your hard drive.

    Albums, unlike folders, a feature finds in Picasa. You can create an album that combines photos from multiple folders. For example, you might create an album called 'Vacation pictures' that include photos featuring Vacation stored in various folders. Unlike Picasa folders, your albums don't correspond to the actual folders on your hard drive. When you delete or move photos from an album, the original files remain in their original locations on your hard drive.

    However, there is no such feature in Windows Live Photo Gallery.   It would be nice to add the album feature in Windows Live Photo Gallery as it is a very popular feature many people use.
